it wasnt too long ago when we could walk up and down the street playing with friends and late night games of release or just hanging out .......child mischief and not so funny pranks. but things have changed in the pittsburgh suburb of mckeesport .....kids can no longer walk the streets with thier friends without being approached to buy drugs ..... now cops can arrest the kids for hanging out or playing release ..... a harmless game played by myself and some friends when i was a child ....police now boligerantly abuse the privelages of being a law enforcement officers......i heard a few months ago from local parents that in the mckeesport district of grandview local police arrested an entire community of underage kids for hanging out .....even if they were sitting on thier own porches ..... this community has gone downward and i am afraid it will not return to when i was younger .....all the people i used to consider friends are now doing drugs ,drinking, and are forming gangs in surrounding communities like back when we had two gangs terrorizing the city over territory and colors .....things should not be this way and i think that its time for the community to take back its city and for people to realize that as a community we should lend a hand and remember that we should still ,regaurdless of its state , take pride in our community and help it return to a respectable well headed community .

I have lived in KC since 2000 and was explaining to a neighbor the concept of release the pedler. The game was totally foriegn to him; however, we decided a group of us should pull together some teams before summers end.
It is sad that this type of entertainment could be confused with criminal activity. How has this happened?
